Give me space!
I have no place
in life’s maddening race,
where I exist, by God’s grace,
yet hunger to see a familiar face
as distancing makes its case,
to be masked with haste!
To ward away the virus’ pace,
advancing, advancing! Lives laid waste…
FOLLOW THE LIGHT
One candle, one light
sputtering and stuttering.
Winds of change cannot,
will not smother its glow.
The light of truth
overshadowing the darkness of lies.
A NEW WORLD
How will what I do in this moment
give hope and help to someone else,
so they know the hellish world of today
will not always be this way?
For something more, my heart yearns.
Make this New World, when it begins,
one full of kindness and comfort,
love, one for another, rippling, flowing
as toward the future we are going.
We ask for ‘normal’ to return.
For something more my heart yearns,
a New World where words of care
are backed up by action taken,
the status quo shaken, shaken.
